WELCOME TO ST JOseph high school


 

Where You Go to High School Matters. Make it Count at St Joes.

What will your path look like from here to higher education? How will you make the most of your days? What will you discover about yourself, your passions, your potential? Who will you impact along the way?

 

At St Joseph High School, we help young men and women make the most of their high school experience. 

So much more than typical college prep, St Joes prepares students to meet the challenges of the collegiate world and beyond through an experiential education that starts with aspirational academics and grows between the textbooks and the classrooms; between students and faculty mentors; between the locker room and the field; between faith, friendships, and family.

 


 

Here, Our Students:  

  • Seek Out Their Talents by exploring an exceptional array of opportunities in academics, athletics, clubs, activities, and service;
     
  • Strive for Greatness  by never settling for the status quo, always advancing their skills, and expanding their boundaries through unmatched global learning experiences;
     
  • Serve the Common Good by developing a lifelong love of helping those in need and giving generously with their time and unique gifts;
     
  • Thrive With Confidence by building an ethical foundation for success that will carry with them as they forge their own future.

 

As the largest, co-ed, Catholic College Preparatory School in Connecticut... 

St Joes gives all students the opportunity to learn and connect across cultures, religions, and borders in a faith-based community that joyfully welcomes all students, regardless of spiritual beliefs.

That's why we say St Joes Cadets are on a mission for more: to be their best selves and to make their mark on our world.

Parent Testimonials

To say that we’ve been happy with our decision to send our son to St Joe’s would be an understatement. We have put our full trust in the SJ institution and it has benefited our family as a whole quite significantly. Chris’ experience could not likely have been duplicated elsewhere. 

The faculty, staff, and culture make SJ a special place. You feel welcomed the minute you walk through the front doors of the school. The teachers are dedicated and genuinely care about their students, often going the extra mile, even if it means staying late to review a lesson. The staff is always available to answer parent or student questions. Everyone at SJ shares a common goal, they want to see you succeed! 

When our son walked through the doors, he knew it was the place for him. People will say you get back what you put into education but what if it went one step further? The learning environment means so much and with St Joes you get a warm supportive family to look out for your child. High school is so much more than learning from a textbook, it is learning to be your best self. St Joes offers an environment to do this. That is why we chose St Joes! My advice to parents would be to make sure your child gets involved in things that interest them and encourage them to not be afraid to try new things.

SJ offers a strong academic culture combined with Catholic values. There is truly a feeling of being home when you walk through the doors. The teachers, the counselors are all there to help the students but it's not in the sense of "doing their jobs" - they truly want the best for each and every child. The kids encourage one another whether it is in the class, on the stage or on the field. That's remarkable to see!  And how things were handled during the quarantine spoke volumes to us! These children were still learning and they grew together through that difficult time.

What I am here to share with you, is that this is a special place.  A place where you join a family whose membership never expires.  This is a community of people that will care for, nurture and remember your children.  This is a place that fills in the missing holes that a regular high school does not provide.  Things like faith, respect, consequence, discipline, kindness, generosity, philanthropy.  While it is a catholic institution, all walks of life are respected and every voice is considered regardless of religion or social philosophy.  Forget everything you think you may know about a catholic private high school because this place does not fit any mold.
